I haven’t posted or updated this site in a while for various reasons, the main one being because my pitbull Chena passed away in December. I haven’t been dealing with it very well, or talking about it to anyone, in fact I still can’t even look at pictures of her. She was 13 years old and had had diabetes for 6 years and recently started suffering from cushings disease which was really taking a toll on her, in addition to arthritis and the diabetes of course. We were trying to treat the cushings for about a month or 2 but her suffering and misery was so great, her health was only getting worse and she had started to wet herself almost constantly. Having been my dog for that entire 13 years, rescued at 6 months old, it was really hard for me to see her like this and after a particularly horrible weekend, christmas weekend, we took her in to put her to sleep on the 26th.
It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, the biggest loss I have ever had and I still cant talk about it and don’t enjoy writing about it, in fact. I will add a photo to this post and end it, then have another good cry.
Chena will continue to represent the site and be a face for Anti BSL advocacy for as long as I am alive.
